  • "B" vitamen's are good for energy and that is what the energy drinks have in them is alot of "B" vitamens. I used to walk 2 miles to work and I would get there just so pumped up and ready to take on the day...

  • Curiously enough energy comes from eating right and exercising!! Seriously! Inactivity makes you lazy and being lazy your body doesn't burn calories like when your exercising and the endorphins in your body go on vacation! LOL

    MAKE yourself go for a short walk around your neighborhood every day or get yourself an exercise video and do just 10-15 minutes of exercise first thing to get your body moving! Eat 5 small meals per day instead of indulging in 2 or 3 big meals!

  • Are you drinking enough water? Being even the teeniest bit dehydrated can leave you feeling droopy; be sure to drink at least 8 8oz glasses a day.
    A magnesium deficiency is incredibly common, and can not only make you feel tired, but can trigger anxiety attacks and migraines, and intensify symptoms of ADD/ADHD. I take a calcium/magnesiumVitamin D (cal/mag/D) daily, to boost my energy, bones and immune system.
    You may want to examine your diet. Meat, dairy, alcohol, simple grains (like white rice and pastas), and processed sugars (the white stuff, too, not just high fructose corn syrup) are all energy sappers. Build your meals around vegetables, whole grains, legumes and fruits
